Help Just got my Nexus S 4G -How to Max my Battery First Time?

Just got it via UPS today. Was super excited, so it was half charged when I first turned it on. It has less than 15% battery now, j/w whats the BEST way to make sure this battery is maximized for long term use?

Should I let it drain completly before charging? OR

Should I just charge what's left and charge for the next 10 hours? (over night) OR

Should I charge more than 10 hours the first time?

I guess I can charge over night, then unplug, go to work and continue charging if necessary.

Am I recommended NOT to use my phone while its charging??

Any other tips in charging or training the battery?

I've stopped long ago about worrying about "conditioning" my batteries. When I get a new phone I just start using it and charge it whenever I need to and top off when I get a chance.

It is a lithium battery, no memory effects. So don't worry about if the way you first charge it will somehow affect it's total life.
Ok! I got this phone about 4 days ago and i was upset that the battery was giving me issues over night once it dropped 13% and im like i didn't even use it my evo never did that. well anyways Today i decided to do a battery test So i wiped the phone out and left it stock with a few app installs that i primary use. Here is my report

12hs and 36m and 4 sec on battery.

**im sure that some changes would be made due to the fact i had to type all this info in but im still at 12% and it is 1:42 im gonna say i prob got almost 13hrs which i think is good. I would enclude photos but i can not take photos of my screen cuz not sure if i have to be rooted or not.

i did not close any apps at all today .

It is about 1:36am and i have 12% left.

what my settings were all like

WI-FI was shut off all day expect the 6hrs * i kinda just left it on.
Mobile network off *used a couple times not long
System select Home only
Display brightness Automatic
Screen time out 1 min
Locations all shut off
Syncing off all day exepct for the last 2hrs cuz i was playing around with my phone and forgot to turn it off.
